After weeks of endless speculation, Gareth Southgate has today announced England’s squad for the 2022 World Cup.
It’s safe to say that the lead-up to the tournament has not gone the way Southgate would have wanted it to, with Chelsea duo Ben Chilwell and Reece James both withdrawing due to injury.
Gareth Southgate revealed on Thursday afternoon who has made the cut, just 11 days before the Three Lions kick off their campaign in Qatar against Iran.
James Maddison’s fine form at Leicester has earned him a spot, while Newcastle striker Callum Wilson, Arsenal defender Ben White and Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford are all in.
Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher was the surprise inclusion.
